Apple’s iPhone 6s Plus and the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 appear to be on their way this fall but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t consider the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 if you’re in the hunt for a new big screen phone. We’ve been using the Galaxy Note 4 since its arrival last year and there are a number of things we still love about the phone.
Last September, Samsung predictably took the stage at IFA 2014 in Berlin Germany to announce its all new Galaxy Note. Or, in this case, Galaxy Notes. On stage the company detailed a Galaxy Note 4, the fourth-generation Galaxy Note, and a curved Galaxy Note 4 variant called Galaxy Note Edge.
The two devices replaced the Galaxy Note 3 with the Galaxy Note 4 assuming the role of the flagship model. Since then, the Galaxy Note 4 has reigned as one of the top big screen smartphones on the planet and it remains a top choice almost a year after its launch date.
The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge have taken some of the spotlight away from the Galaxy Note 4 but that doesn’t mean that it’s no longer an option. And despite rumors of iPhone 6s Plus and Galaxy Note 5 launches this fall, we still think the Galaxy Note 4 is worth considering if you’re in the hunt for a new device.
We still have several weeks to go before Apple and Samsung announce their new devices. Samsung’s Galaxy Note 5 launch is rumored for August while the iPhone 6s Plus is expected in September. And while they’re tempting, we advise you not to get tunnel vision as we approach their announcements. You need to be researching the competition which includes the Galaxy Note 4.
We’ve been using the Galaxy Note 4 (and Galaxy Note Edge) for months now and there’s still a whole lot to like about this phone. With that in mind, we want to take a look at some of the things we love about the Galaxy Note 4. Keep these in mind as we head deeper into the summer.
